Wonderful News! Unstoppable Wasp is Coming Back!
We live in a dark world of comic book cancellations and abandonment. Many a wonderful little series has met the chopping block, cutting them short before they had a chance to thrive. Rare is the instance where we get nice things…but here we are! The Unstoppable Wasp, by writer Jeremy Whitley, is coming back!
From the sound of it, Whitley is picking up right where he left off with Nadia van Dyne and the Agents of G.I.R.L.!
How cool is this?! I loved Unstoppable Wasp! It was adorable, adorkable, very friendly and colorful, and Nadia is a really fun and charming lead character. I haven’t read much else with her in it, but Whitley’s Nadia is such a heartfelt character. She wasn’t just your average superhero. She was a bit off-kilter, but 100% heroic and confident. It was painful to lose this comic the first time.
But The Unstoppable Wasp is coming back in October! Art will be by Gurihiru, who I am not familiar with, but all this preview art looks pretty awesome, and perfect for the series. In the meantime, I’ll have to grab those Unstoppable Wasp tpbs on my Amazon wishlist and remind myself where things left off.
(Also, after I’d written up this article and prepared it to post, Marvel also announced that Sina Grace’s Iceman comic was coming back, too! That’s another comic I loved that was cancelled too soon! But I’m too lazy to rewrite this entire post to include both comics, so I’m just adding this addendum. No disrespect for Sina Grace or Iceman.)

Definitely great news. I loved the previous run. I’ll miss Charretier’s lines, but Gurihiru are amazing. They were the main artists on Unbelievable Gwenpool, and they brought a lot of charm and energy to that book. So they’ll be a great fit for Wasp.
I knew there was something familiar about this preview art. I’m almost done with the Gwenpool series and it’s been pretty great! The art, especially, made the series.
